Welcome from the Chair
Dr. Evangeline DeLeon PhD, RN
Welcome to the Department of Nurse Education. What a great time to be a Nurse! There are so many exciting and fulfilling initiatives taking place in our program as we achieve excellence in our mission to produce the next generation of nurses.
Our program philosophy of caring, communication, competence and clinical decision making help our students enter the profession of nursing to service the individual patient and significantly impact the health and well being of the people in our community. The quality education we provide is in concert with our health care agency partners and exceptional faculty and staff who have an unrelenting dedication to the success of our students. As the Chair of the Department of Nurse Education, I have an unrestrained commitment to help our aspiring students become the compassionate, highly skilled professional nurses of tomorrow.

The Del Mar College Student Nurse Association (SNA) is a great way to make student connections and increase your involvement in community events. In addition to local campus activities it also SNA members are a part of a national professional organization. This semester, our Officer Board will proudly represent Del Mar College SNA and work hard for the members. You will find your friendly SNA officers and SNA members participating in many events such as the New Nursing Student Orientation, Annual Share-a-meal for the Ronald McDonald House, Annual Community Campus Easter Egg Hunt which always includes an educational presentation for children on a variety of health topics. We have volunteered at The Ark Youth Shelter and many other events throughout each semester.
